George Washington Ball
Sunday, February 16th 2020 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As a way to celebrate and remember our nation's first president, people across the country would honor George Washington by throwing balls and banquets on his birthday. This lively tradition began while he was alive and continued into the mid 19th century.
Join us for an afternoon of 19th century music and dancing at the Great Falls Tavern as we throw our own ball! Members of the Victorian Dance Society and a live band will be performing. Participation is highly encouraged!
